Bulk Storage of recycled water

This highly treated water then enters the recycled water network known in the Shoalhaven as Reclaimed Effluent Management Scheme (REMS). 

The recycled water system is carried to the local farms in a separate network of pipes that are colour coded (purple) so residents know whether they are using drinking water or recycled water.

The recycled water is used for irrigation on farms, golf courses and local sporting fields
